Baltimore Racks Up DOUBLE Chicago’s Gun Homicide Rate In 2017

Baltimore’s skyrocketing gun violence has made residents more than twice as likely to be shot to death than Chicagoans, according to current 2017 crime statistics.

Chicago has suffered 503 gun homicides so far in 2017. With a population of over 2.7 million, the gun homicide rate is at just over 18 people per 100,000 residents.

Baltimore, however, has suffered 275 gun homicides with a population of just over 621,000, putting the homicide rate at more than 44 per 100,000. The city is on track to break its all-time murder record originally set in 1992, when Baltimore had 100,000 more residents.

Both cities are long-standing Democratic strongholds. Baltimore hasn’t had a Republican mayor since 1947 and hasn’t voted Republican in a presidential election since 1956. All of the city’s state senators and delegates are Democrats as well.

Too bad those murders in both cities can't happen in the legislative and Mayoral halls this week.

It might just cure the main problem.

You know what. I was just in Baltimore errr....I mean Bullitmore tonight. WHAT A CRAPWHOLE! Even down around Inter harbor, trash all over the place. Walked past a trash can and I thought I was Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds from all of the bugs flying around. The only thing that out numbered the bugs from the trash was all of the homeless people sitting...errr...I mean sleeping all over. Oh, and let's not forget the little snow flakes...errr...I mean hood rats all over the place yelling and screaming.

Bullitmore...Crapwhole USA...

@9:59, and you never will. They get nothing from their own kind. We are the ones working and having money taken from our pockets and given to them. So in order to get more from us, they go on with their cussing, ranting, raving, complaining, and claims of racism to get more freebies from us and then they will shut up till the next time they want something. As the saying goes, "The squeaky wheel gets the grease." And they take it literally. They need to be told to shut the hell up and get on down the street.
